The Göta kanal

In a trip in southern Sweden, one of the charatheristic sights is the Göta Kanal.
Built in the late XIX Century, this 190Km long canal has boon its importance to link the Vättern lake to the Baltic Sea.

We met a pair of the 58 locks, where we could admire the perfection of the engineering works, opposed to the complete inability of the tourists to manage it.
The result was funny…

Undoubtedly, the locks are a good subject for the photos…
